This was an experiment with a new set of watercolour pencils. The reference photo showed this rather colourful sea turtle swimming in clear waters. Every year, turtles come to our beaches around Koroni to lay their eggs. The nests are protected and watched over by a group of volunteers who spend their summer holidays here. My drawing of this turtle looks like it has a plastic bag around its neck, rather than water. Maybe it’s my way of protesting about the amount of plastic waste that gets into our seas and oceans, harming the creatures who call the sea their home.
